It's hard to say. Edmonds was a "Web Gems" player in his best years; he was dramatic and memorable. If Bobby Thomson were a career CF with Edmonds' numbers, he'd already be in the HOF, IMO.

"I do not care if half the league strikes. Those who do it will encounter quick retribution. All will be suspended and I don't care if it wrecks the National League for five years. This is the United States of America and one citizen has as much right to play as another. The National League will go down the line with Robinson whatever the consequences. You will find if you go through with your intention that you have been guilty of complete madness."
